Podcast: UGA might have big plans for 4-star running back

Brandon Adams

D’Andre Swift — a 4-star running back and incoming freshman — is one of Georgia’s highest rated 2017 recruits. Yet he is often overlooked by some fans because he plays the same position as returning seniors Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. However –despite the fact that Chubb and Michel get plenty of attention — there could still be a significant role for Swift this season.

I’ll talk about that today on DawgNation Daily — the daily podcast for Georgia Bulldogs fans. Plus I’ll address the potential good news for UGA fans regarding Trent Thompson, and the possible bad news regarding Roquan Smith.

DawgNation’s recruiting expert Jeff Sentell also joins the show and we discuss…

  • UGA’s continuing recruitment of 4-star quarterback Justin Fields
  • The possibility that the Dawgs can attract some attention from 4-star defensive tackle Robert Cooper
  • And the latest information on 4-star wide receiver Josh Vann
